The Magnetist – everything old school

August 6, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on The Magnetist – everything old school 

Who needs streaming music by the way :-)

THE MAGNETIST is a short documentary about Micke, also known as ‘The Magnetist’, whose life revolves around cassette tapes.

Most of Micke’s time is spent on varius tape-related projects; he blogs about them, he makes music with them and he got a monthly tape club in his hometown Stockholm. Sometimes it’s a struggle. Here we get an insight to Micke’s life as a tapeologist and joins him to his tape-only club to find out the motivation behind his interest.

MUSIC:

Usha Uthup & Bappi Lahiri – Auva Auva: Koi Yahan Nache

Alhaji K. Frimpong – Rikia
Massinko – Arada
Pas de Deux – Cardiocleptomanie

Vince Clarke demonstrates Synth Gurning

july19032013

Synth legend Vince Clarke is conducting a pretty unique “synth” competition, namely the first International Synth Gurning Competition. Synth Gurning is defined as the art of producing synth sounds or effects using just the voice whilst pulling a funny face.

The concept for this contest is simple: video yourself making your own synth sound or effect with just your voice. Clarke is also looking for ‘interesting facial expression’ (gurning), to enhance the performance. Upload the video to YouTube and tweet him (@thecabinstudio) the link before midnight (UK) on August 16th 2013.

Just in case you don’t know what this means, you can view a video of Vince Clarke below showing you how to do it.

Clarke will be giving away his own personally autographed, limited-edition, Mute Synth to the best performer, and will sign certificates of distinction for the runners up.

Erasure’s Vince Clarke demonstrates the art of ‘Synth Gurning’ as part of his introduction to The First International Synth Gurning Competition which is currently running on his website here…

In the MooG for Love
Animation film tribute to Legend of Electronic music KLAUS SCHULZE.
Directed by James L. Frachon

These “cut-outs” are faithful counterparts paperboard kits * of some mythical synthezisers which make me dream since ages (I’m almost vintage too !).

I’m still dreaming…

Music toys: QUICKSHOT STUDIO 4 (1988)

October 26, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Music toys: QUICKSHOT STUDIO 4 (1988) 

Here’s a nice new toy demo from Analog Audio, details below:

Are you tired of cold, digital sounding recordings? The fully analogue QuickShot Studio 4 allows you to bring back the warmth of analogue in your recordings. The Studio 4 contains a great mixing console, a tape recorder, a microphone and very useful effects for the daily studio work…

QuickShot has also produced other high quality studio equipment like the “Sound Machine”. This is a similar machine, just instead of the effects it contains a synthesizer ;-).

It came with shoulder straps, microphone and headphones.

As a kid I always wanted it, but nobody wanted to buy it for me… my parents had no clue how important analog recording to me was :-)

The Beer Cans Keyboard Movie

October 23, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on The Beer Cans Keyboard Movie 

Do you have any idea of what you get if you combine 44 beer cans with an Arduino board and a Raspberry PI ?

We will tell you : fantastic user engagement!

We did this at Webstock, event which took place in Bucharest in September. Staropramen, one of the sponsors of the event asked us for an innovative way to offer a trip to Prague to one of the event’s guests.

So, we came up with a keyboard made out of 44 Staropramen beer cans. Each beer can was a key, and whenever someone touched it, the corresponding letter appeared on a large plasma screen (just like any regular computer keyboard).

And the surprise was fantastic! The user experience and engagement overcame any expectation. Every single person who attended Webstock tried the keyboard and participated to the contest.

Behind the scene, the system is built around an Arduino board and a few capacitive controllers (just like the ones which are inside smartphones’ touch screens), connected to a Raspberry PI board which controls the plasma screen display.

A movie and some photos took during the event can be found here –

Webstock is the biggest blogging and social media event in Romania. Find out more about Webstock here – webstock.ro .

Tiny TV and the Raspberry synth

“I hooked up a USB bus-powered tiny TV to Piana. Now the little children of Stonehenge can play synthesizers. Or they could if I could find a similarly tiny keyboard.”
